BWW Reviews: Young Singers Peddie, Dirksen, Block and Lowe Are No Longer Waiting to Join the Shining New Lights of CabaretBWW Reviews: Young Singers Peddie, Dirksen, Block and Lowe Are No Longer Waiting to Join the Shining New Lights of Cabaret
by Billie Roe - Nov 22, 2014

Every year, despite a litany of warnings they come to the Big Apple with big dreams. Warnings like: “You have to pay your dues.” “It's a tough business, kid.” “How are you going to survive?” There's no such thing as an overnight success, yet still they come to be at “the top of the heap,” as Kander and Ebb so eloquently put it. The four young performers featured here haven't yet vaulted to the top of the cabaret heap, but they've certainly made their marks with excellent shows during 2014, while exhibiting the potential to get there. The spotlight is already shining on Chrysten Peddie, Angela Dirksen, Rembert Block, and Kristoffer Lowe. (more...)

BWW Review: For Those Who Say They Want a REVOLUTION, the Political, Passionate, and Patriotic Derow-France Duo Show at the Duplex Is One To See TonightBWW Review: For Those Who Say They Want a REVOLUTION, the Political, Passionate, and Patriotic Derow-France Duo Show at the Duplex Is One To See Tonight
by Billie Roe - Nov 11, 2014

Based on the promotion of their new duo show, Revolution (a four-show run that ends at the Duplex tonight at 6:30), you might have gotten the impression that Dawn Derow and Kathleen France would be engaging in a zany bit of fluff poking fun at American military politics in a Bob Hope USO Show kinda way. But while there is definitely some frivolity and even some biting satire along the way, the women also convey a serious sense of patriotism and reverence for those who have fought and died in America's many wars. In fact, a portion of the audience cover charge is being donated to the Wounded Warrior Project (www.woundedwarriourproject.org). (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Oct 31, 2014

Renata Braham, the director of Motown Sounds, loved to sing but never saw herself with a microphone in her hand in front of an audience. Her husband Darryl, who played in a band, thought otherwise, and 'pushed' her onstage. She was surprised that she loved it. Fifteen years later, she is still singing, but now she has a passion to help others who love the idea of performing -- but who may lack the confidence -- get up on stage. (more...)
